Here’s a message to Romelu Lukaku: Steer clear of any form of social media tonight.

Marouane Fellaini might want to heed that advice, too.

The Belgium players were panned on Twitter for their performances in the 2-0 defeat to Italy in the Red Devils’ European Championship opener.

Lukaku missed a handful of glorious opportunities to score while Fellaini did what Fellaini does best - chasing shadows around the pitch while occasionally falling into opponents.

Much is expected of this Belgium team but they failed to deliver against what is believed to be one of the weakest Italian sides in recent history.

Twitter rips Lukaku and Fellaini

Lukaku's profligacy

After Emanuele Giaccherini opened the scoring with a fine finish in the 32nd minute, Marc Wilmots’ side was unable to break through a resilient Italian defence.

And Lukaku was at fault for missing plenty of chances, including this one.

It was then left to Graziano Pelle to complete the win in the 93rd minute.

Belgium face the Republic of Ireland on Saturday and after tonight’s showing, it’ll be a surprise if Fellaini is playing and Divock Origi isn’t starting in Lukaku’s relief.
